When businesses have to transport their paper to a shredding service facility, the total cost of shredding and disposal can be quite high. On-site service is much more affordable and also safer. There is no worry about the documents getting into the wrong hands when they never leave the office.
Tailored bin size
You should only have to pay for the shredding that you need. Look for a document destruction company that has multiple bin sizes. This feature allows you to pay for a specific volume of paper, as opposed to paying a flat or fixed rate.
A document service should have comprehensive, ongoing background checks for their staff and should issue Certificates of Destruction after all jobs. These processes ensure that companies have legal protection for their sensitive information (i.e. insurance documents, medical records). When an organization has a certificate and a loss or leak occurs, they are covered against any claims for damages that employees or clients may file.
Type of equipment
Some shredding services simply own a shredder but attempt to pass themselves off as professionals in the industry. You want to work with trustworthy, experienced services who understand the importance of protecting their clients' information and data. Do your research about the equipment and machinery that different services use. You can also request customer testimonials and/or references so that you can talk to other clients directly about their experiences.
Many companies are concerned about the environmental awareness of document shredding services. Inquire about whether or not a company recycles the paper that they shred.
There are a number of extra features that shredding services may offer to provide assurance or proof of complete shredding. For example, some destruction companies have cameras in their trucks so that clients can watch the shredding process first hand. Other services offer hard drive and disc destruction to ensure total annihilation of sensitive data.
